Hidden Treasures Academy utilizes the online service of ism’s Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process applications. FAST will be the standard submission format for all applicants not paying the full tuition rate.
FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Results are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee who makes recommendations to the Executive Director based on next year’s budget and financial aid award letters are then sent to families.
As a reminder, you must reapply each year. To start the process, please do the following:
Click on the “FAST” Logo to the right.
Click ‘Start Application’ to begin.

FAST has a 24/7/365 helpline available to you should you have any questions, which can be reached by calling 1-877-326-FAST (3278). Please do not call the school with questions.
